What does this tell you about the male ego?

Always with humanity, 'Hollywood's never-ending theme: 'Violence is the solution' (to all things)!

The 'New Age' Crusades continue! And will be the destruction of humanity. Read 'On the Beach!'

I wouldn't be surprised!

So, what's the 'secret,' to getting control, control of the 'monkey mind' and/or called Ego, the 'I,' of you, your name...

You have to be motivated to change, to subdue the Ego 'I.' 
I don't know how all of that came to me...?  I think the idea from a variety of sources.  Sometimes, it's just 'you,' in a particular place in time.  Something you have to go through.
My earlier bodily life, nothing but mistakes, pain and suffering.  But, then if you survive (yourself) you begin to 'get it.'  That there's something else to consider, like IT, whatever name you give 'it.'  You also realize, that to get to so-called 'heaven,' you have to go through 'so-called' Hell!  This is the Jesus story, what it really means.  There's good news (Gospel) and bad news.  First, it's possible to do, to be redeemed, but the bad news (I suppose to most.) is that you gotta do it yourself in this life time!
All of this is called evolution...
On one hand I'm a pessimist, knowing history (in Duality), and how Wo/mankind has evolved so little in the last one million years.  But, only from my POV.  Maybe we've evolved tremendously, out of the slime (or from another world), to where there's this concept called 'love.'  
Jesus brought the idea of 'love' into consciousness.
We (Tantric Taoism) add one word to that, 'unconditional.' For most so-called 'love,' is nothing more than 'desire,' Nature's Joke I call it to proliferate the species.
Well, folks we've been too successful in this category, and our 'success,' is going to be our demise, unless we become conscious enough to slow down at least!  Do couples need to have five children?  No, one's enough, maybe two...
On the otherhand, I am an optimist because I know we're into a New Cycle, one ruled by Female Energy (just in the nick of time)!  Everything is beginning to reverse itself,
Male to Female,
North to South,
War to Peace,
Day to Night,
Bad to good,
Stingy to generous,
Not caring to caring,
On and on,
A better, more positive cycle!
Thank your God for such,
As it will mean the human race survives!
Is this good?
Only if it's an enlightened form of humankind, one who realizes we're all 'connected' as one form of LIFE!  We're not separate, just because we have a name!  We have to stop abusing Mother Earth, killing off life in every form, and just for money!  The North America indians once asked the white man, 'What will you do when there is no more food, can you survive eating your money?'  We have to change, and that means me of all people, me first, as there is only hope if we solve whatever within as in, 'We have met the enemy and he is us!' (Walt Kelly).  We're the problem, not 'them.'  Note the politicians, not the other religion, not the other God, but us!
So, join us in at least trying to shed light into the darkest corners, beginning with each one of us, first!

We're so stupid we can even punish people properly! Why, I'll bet the system in on the deal and collect a 'mordida!'

Ironically, we just purchased the domain name:

Dick H. on the 'History of Sea Navigation,' the quest for measuring LONGITUDE (with clocks).

The search for a practical way of determining longitude at sea was a horrible problem in the early 18th century.  Briefly, there was no good way of doing it.  We knew that longitude was related to the Earth's rotation, that is, time.  You could easily determining longitude if you knew when noon was at a known point (later Greenwich) and comparing that time to your own time of noon -- that is, when noon occurred on your ship.  But, you needed an accurate clock to do this.  The development of a clock accurate enough to take to see was a quest among all the European powers.  They knew that whoever developed one would, most likely, rule the world.
John Harrison, a Brit, developed the first practical chronometer in the mid 1700's.  This, along with the development of the modern marine sextant made the problem of solving longitude at sea, possible and enabled "Britannia to Rule The Waves."
For awhile, there were several prime meridians -- each country had their own.  Fir instance, in France, the 'Prime Meridian" was a brass line on the floor of Saint Sulpice Cathedral in Paris.  Even the US had their own "Prime Meridian," of base of reference -- for us it was a line between the Capitol dome (or where it would be) and the Washington Monument.  Seafaring countries, though, soon realized that everyone having their own frame of reference was silly -- and confusing, so, since the Brits already were on their way to ruling the world; the other nations decided to go along with them and make the Greenwich meridian the prime meridian and the universal point of reference.  This was done in the early 19th century.
There is an excellent PBS/Nova show on this subject called "Lost at Sea -- The Search for Longitude."  It's worth watching and I always show it to my navigation classes.  It begins with the loss of the British Fleet on the Scilly Isles, led by Adm. Sir Cloudsley Shovell (sounds like a Monty Python routine) and that event set the stage for the "quest for longitude."

Money is God, what do you expect?

Dick H. on the 'Speed of Thought!'

The speed of thought -- that is an interesting question.  I'd have to say that it is probably, nay maybe necessarily, faster than light.
 I'm sure you know of the Einstein - Polovsky -Rosen experiment also know as the EPR Effect.  Einstein and his colleagues postulated this effect in the 1940's (I believe), which has been later verified as being valid.  To make it as brief as possible, it says (predicts) that if you send-off two photons moving at the speed of light, in opposite directions and then you alter the "spin state" (by passing it through a magnetic field) the "twin" of the photon, going in the other direction, will also change it's spin state even though it did not pass through the field.  The question to all of this is "how did the twin know of this?"  Since they are both traveling at the speed of light there, then, must be some sort of "information exchange" that occurs faster than light.  In other words, the speed of light may not be an absolute limit after all. 
 My take on this is that the speed of light is a limit only for things that have mass -- such as every known atomic particle.  But, then, does not apply as a limit to those things who have no mass -- those things, then, may be able to transcend light and become "superluminal" and live both within and beyond ordinary reality.  This, then, would or could be "thoughts" also "spirits," "souls" and most probably God.  All lie beyond our understanding of physics and, therefore, are not bound by the rules of consensual physics.  That does not, though, make them any less real on tangible.

Oh well, sorry about that! Collateral damage!

More on 3D Printing...

From Julianne Murray, an old friend, who lives in Klamath Falls, Oregon

"Well, I just spent the morning with a neighbor who is a very talented visual artist, now in her late 60's.  Her living room is cluttered with her paintings and photographs.  Mary Hyde Martin has worked the last several years photographing a dying culture, "Buckaroos in the Great Basin."  We talked about some of the people she has met recently while out doing photography in very rural areas.  She was helping me put a donate button on the Facebook Page for Klamath Animal Shelter.  KAS is my main public focus since retiring a year ago.  I photograph the animals and post them on FB and a website and do other activities to help dogs and cats find homes.  For me, this is very rewarding.  Otherwise, my days are shaped around getting my 11 year old daughter off to school and then providing taxi service for her late afternoons.  The last few weeks I've been engaged in ridiculous battles with her teacher and the principal over what they call education.  Just now I'm getting ready to call the mayor, who was a high school cohort, and ask about his plan to condemn Pacific Power facilities here with the city taking over the local power industry."

'Could,' the operative word, 'could,' meaning... (used to express possibility): I wonder who that could be at the door. That couldn't be true."

Great example of how inefficient Governments are, and then blaming whatever on their citizens!

Paraphrased from a book entitled, THE TENTH INSIGHT, by James Redfield
The wisdom was emerging that, as with the problem of poverty and violence, the crime of pollution has its co-conspirators (Money is God!)  People who would normally never kill a fly or dump garbage in the wild themselves, worked with people who did and they kept quiet about it.  They said nothing (Money is God) yet now, thank God, things were changing.  These people were not only speaking up but were also manning the barricades at protests, risking their safely for Mother Earth!  In the course of their new courage (Money wasn't God any longer, freedom!) they inspired others to join them!
Note, at some point we're going to have to risk our lives for Mother, now Father Earth, or succumb to extinction! 
What we need is courage, and it isn't the absence of fear, but the ability to overcome fear, without thinking about it.

Letter to the Editor, 'Denver Post,' Colorado, U.S.A.

19 Mayo 2013
To the Editor:
Re:  the legalization of recreational marijuana ('Electric Puha' in N.Z., 'La Mota' in Mexico, 大麻 in Chinese (Simplified), 'weed' in Bolivia where I am now)
My Hutchison family goes way back in Colorado, about 1895, when Camden Robert moved the entire family from Illinois-Missouri to Cripple Creek. Of course, they were after that gold rock!  They ended up outside of Steamboat Springs, a place called Hahn's Peak (Hutchisons in the local museum)
My father was born in 1902, in Cripple Creek.
I grew up in the Rockies, when Evergreen had maybe a dozen log cabins (we used to rent one for the summer).  The fishing was great!
I had aunts living in Denver, up into the 1950s.
At one time my father managed the Brown Palace Hotel.
Recently (2000-2005) I lived in Old Colorado City/Manitou Springs.
Thus, I have a 'connection' with Colorado.
I have applauded fellow Coloradons for coming to their senses and voting in legal 'pot.'  This is way overdue.  The hemp plant, one of multiple uses, all good in my opinion!
Now, I hear the conservative establishment is trying their best to find some way to derail this, and/or tax it out of existence!  For shame!
I've never really understood the conservative fear of 'weed,' except that they think it's bad for business (employees get lazy and develop consciousness -- Oh, oh!).  
It's always been a money issue.  We don't believe the Medical Establishment is really concerned with our wellbeing!
Alcohol is much worse for you than Cannabis Sativa, trust me!  I've partaken of both.  Alcohol makes males aggressive, and Cannabis turns them into lovers!  Maybe this is what the Establishment doesn't like?  They'd much rather have men fighting amongst themselves (divide and conquer). 
Finally, what about the people?  What about the fact that Proposition 64, passed in favor of, and Gov. John Hickenlooper, signed it into law!
What ever happened to law?  Whatever happened to integrity?  Seems to be missing at the lowest levels in Denver!  Oh well, nothing new here as 'Politics...the last refuge for scoundrels!'

The Daily Does 19 July 2005

Before departing for Chengdu in a week, I better rewind and tell how we got here to China and what happened… I know you can’t wait!

23 June 2005 – Beijing

We have a Chinese buffet breakfast. It’s horrible, no tea, and nothing hot! From now on in China, I’ll be buying/travelling my own food. Or, did I tell this all before?

So much happens to me I can barely keep up with it all… I’m going to go and check… Hold on… I can’t find June 22nd…? But, maybe apart of June 21st…? Ke garne? Keep going… If I stop to ponder too long, days will go by, weeks, as we pass through the void at the speed of 30KM per second… We’ve already traveled thousands of miles just thinking about it!

Beijing, yes Beijing, the Washington D.C. of China, the home of the Ti’an Namen uprising in 1989, and the Summer Olympic Games in 08, the two events some (almost) twenty years apart! But, don’t forget the guy who stopped the tank! Where is he now? There was courage!

I found June 22nd, now the 23rd:

Speaking of Ti’an Namen Square we take a taxi to… We’re doing the tourist thing… Visiting Mao’s Mausoleum. I’m neutral. But, when I find out I have to check my backpack, no way… Mao will have to do without me! I explain to Nisha, as she’s curious… Young people… So much to learn about life and living (besides school). I offer to wait, watching all of our hand bags. We decide where we will meet later (across the street). I’m happy to wait in the shade of a tree as the ‘discomfort level’ is off the scale! Maybe it’s Mao’s bad energy! Nisha runs up, having forgotten something (they won’t let her take in her purse even).

While I’m waiting I take some photographs of life in Beijing (in ‘Gallery’ at

I’m standing there observing Chinese humanity when a Chinese woman gets my attention. She wants me to read something she’s written. But, it’s in Chinese. She’s carrying a young boy on her back. She tried to convey something, but I could only guess. My intuition told me that this woman was widowed (the child orphaned) in the ’89 uprising, and she wanted me (others) to know. I would think, if this was true, that this is a dangerous thing to do, as there are police everywhere. I offer some money, which she accepts. Maybe she’s just a beggar!

After she departs I lay the written material on my backpack. It isn’t long when a young Chinese woman walks up and is curious about this. She squats and reads it intently (see photograph in ‘Gallery’ ).

Nisha, Subodh and Mira return in something like thirty minutes. They’ve seen Mao’s body lying ‘in State!’ I haven’t missed much I’m told! I have a theory that it’s a Disney version of Mao… Who would know? Who cares? Even the present government admits ‘he made mistakes!’

Now, we’re off to World Park… I have no idea what this is, or where… I just follow along.

Nisha is trying to figure out which bus to take, when a Chinese man, physically handicapped no less, seems to want to help us! Of course, he’s selling something, but after what he did (we followed him several blocks to get to the correct bus stop), I would have bought whatever it was he was selling… What was it…? A map, some memorabilia? When I offered a donation he wouldn’t accept it however. A man with integrity!

We board a double-decked bus and climb above and sit in front. The view of passing Beijing is good, although right in front of me is a blaring TV set (ubiquitous). In the next row I observe a mother taking very good care of her young son (about eight- years old). She fans him. She offers him water. Ah, mothers, amazing… I thank God for mine!

We go on and on, must be one hour before Nisha indicates we’re getting off. We’ve finally arrived at World Park, and now I remember seeing it yesterday, riding back from the Great Wall (Badaling). I have a very good memory for things seen.

We are suddenly deluged with people selling drinks (it’s horribly hot), and restaurants (‘Come to ours, it’s the best!’ they must be saying). We pass one and end up in the second, and quite a nice place it turns out to be. It’s air-conditioned for one thing. The food is good and fast, the service solicitous. Nisha and Mira eat like Trojans! I am weary of eating, and constipated. But, they think I have to eat to keep up my strength when just the reverse is true! They don’t know it, but they’re ‘killing me with kindness!’

After lunch on to World Park in the afternoon heat! It’s insane! There is no one in the Park, they’re all smarter than us! But, we only have this afternoon, and this is a part of Nisha’s plan. Thank God we rent an electric cart with guide. I would have passed out walking! The discomfort index is now off the off-the-chart reading! But, I’m there as photographer, and pose Nisha, Subodh and Mira in front of the Eiffel Tower, the World Trade Center (prior to 9/11), the Taj Mahal, pyramids in Egypt, Niagara Falls, etc. – all smaller scale replicas of things that identify that country.

Later when I post these in ‘the Gallery’ (don’t my captions mislead on purpose and sure enough, someone is fooled. He sends me an email message telling me it’s not London Bridge they’re standing in front of but some other bridge in London. We got around ‘the world’ that afternoon in about one hour.

Now, it’s really hot! We buy cold drinks (Subodh likes his really cold!) and try to recover in the shade. But, soon time to return to beautiful downtown Beijing. Before we depart we take some photographs at the main entrance. Three ‘bums’ accost us and it’s a ‘photo opp.!’ (see in ‘the Gallery’ at

Poor Mira, I felt sorry for her, as she’s not used to this kind of running around. She falls asleep on the bus. I might have too, except it’s not that comfortable! We must have stopped a hundred times, between World Park and ‘downtown’ (this ‘local’ bus). But, we get to see the real Beijing. I can’t say it’s a place I would like to live… It has no sky, just that kind of toxic haze that L.A. or Dallas has.

But, it’s only 1142 days until the Summer Olympics begin—China making a very big deal out of this! They’d have to pay me much money to be in Beijing in 2008! Not interested!

We take a taxi to our ‘out-of-the-way hotel, retrieve our bags (I’ve kept mine with me.), and ride on to the Beijing Train station. Wow! Talk about people! There must be one million Chinese coming and going ! It’s overwhelming, just like Shanghai’s RR station—not a place I would seek to hang out!

We’re early so we sit at an outdoor café drinking more, and eating more (I buy a banana for later). We observe Chinese humanity as it rushes past, or sits and drinks like us… Subodh and Mira call home (Kathmandu) via Nisha’s mobile. This is the most interesting part of the day for me, observing the scene. I go buy film. Subodh wanders around. The ladies find a toilet.

After ninety-minute’s wait, we follow Nisha (our Chinese-speaking Nepali guide) to our sleeper car and back to Shanghai. This time, however, we’re separated, Nisha and Mira in one ‘stall,’ Subodh and me in the adjacent one (and all of us on the second level). The desirable one is the lower berth, as you have a table, and don’t have to climb up and down.

I’ve learned the trick with Chinese train travel… Buy the ticket early or you’re going to end up on the top bunk, or not get on at all. There are millions of Chinese people travelling by train everyday. Buy early for a off-hour departure (like in the middle of the night). Try to time arrivals at off-hours too, so you won’t have to deal with the ‘stampede!’ It’s madness to me!

The all-night ride back to Shanghai is jerkier and noisier than the one going to Beijing… Thus, I don’t sleep that well. The same thing for Subodh, both of us arising early… 0530. I make Nescafe coffee for us (the Chinese drink nothing but Lu Cha/green tea). All cars have an endless supply of boiling hot water! This is good!

We arrive and deal with the ‘stampede,’ rushing for a taxi which takes us back to Shanghai Second Medical University. Subodh and ladies go to Nisha’s room, I head for our hotel room and a hot shower! Some things ‘hot’ are good!

24 June 2005 (in Shanghai)

This is a day of shopping which I should have sat out. I’m not a consumer, I don’t even like window shopping—thank God I’m not married! But, somehow I go with the ‘flow,’ as Subodh has been so nice to me.

We go to the Lotus Super Mall, next to the Oriental Pearl TV Tower. The mall is pretty amazing actually, ten floors of stores and restaurants. They look and buy, look and buy! I buy one gray t-shirt for 9.90 Yuan, or $1.25 cents. That’s the sum of my purchases for a week in China… Except for film… I buy many rolls of film. Kodak, Fuji, would be happy to know. They buy gifts to take back to family and friends in Nepal. I take photographs of them looking and buying.

We eat in one of the Mall restaurants, Subodh after something in particular. I think he’s trying to accommodate me actually, always thoughtful he is! I get my rice!

Afterwards we walk the Promenade on the Huangpu River, this opposite the Bund. At night the lights are spectacular, and we take photographs with such in the b.g. (see in ‘the Gallery’ ).

I buy them Hagen Daz ice cream!

We take the five-minute ferry ride across the Huangpu, and taxi back to where we’re sleeping! It’s 10P.M. and been a hard day of shopping! We’re asleep before our heads touch the pillows (as least mine).

Being a tourist is a strenuous thing! More debilitating actually than cycling 100KM per day, which I’d much rather do!

June 25th and 26th, (I think) in Shanghai…

Two more days of doing the ‘tourist number.’ I remember more shopping. I remember ‘Old Shanghai’ (more shopping).

I remember seeing Nisha, Subodh and Mira off to the airport early one morning. I’m taking a train to Hangzhou to ‘live!’ for awhile, checking out the Apollo Development Corporation (Stephanie’s company). They’re flying to Bangkok for a few days ‘vacation,’ before returning to Kathmandu. It’s Nisha’s last moments in Shanghai, after six-years of Medical School. It’s my beginning in China!

Seems like I’ve left out Nisha’s graduation, on a Tuesday…? Oh, well… You get the idea!

Suddenly I was on my own in China, ‘no direction known like a rolling stone’… Well, not exactly! Bhuwan (my new Chinese-speaking Nepali friend) takes and gets me on the train in Shanghai. Stephanie and Benson will be at the train station in Hangzhou.

We’ll be ‘hanging ten, in Zhouland!’ or should it be ‘Zhaoland?’ Whatever… Soon continuing ‘Pilgrimage to Mt. Kailas!’ Remember…?

The energy is shifting North to South, the magnetic poles reversing which will mean Great Change (for humanity, whomever survives)!   Imagine it!  Imagine as the energy shifts, North to South, Night to Day, Male to Female (this transition already in progress).  What havoc and chaos this will cause!  But, it's necessary to get humanities' attention.  We don't change, evolve, without getting 'pushed!'  And we're in for a 'Pushing!'  
Modern man has relied too much on technology.  Now, s/he will learn to survive with less of it (pray you're one of the lucky ones that have succumbed).  The survivors will have to adapt to the new Cycle (Age of Kalki, Age of The Guan Yin:  Female Energy in control).
In just 13 days, a large asteroid, 1998-QE2, will 'pass' by the Earth, less than 4 million miles / 6 million kilometers distance.  This is a 'close shave,' in terms of astronomical distances!  And if they're (the astronomers) wrong, this could be it, the one, and it's BIG, bigger than the QE2 ocean liner, and if it comes closer it could cause the reversal of the poles to increase dramatically.  If it hits the Earth going as fast as they do, something like 5 Billion people would be wiped out over time, as a great cloud of 'shit' would prevent the sun.  No sun, no life!
But, what is life but consciousness!   Shift your consciousness, and you shift your life!  Shift your consciousness and you will make existence, this 'life,' better for you and others -- you're only a figment of your imagination anyway!  Imagine that!
So, let's see what happens this May 31st.  In the U.S., Memorial Day!
In terms of devastation an asteroid, the size of 1998-QE2, hitting the earth would be catastrophic.  But, I think humanity needs it.  We can't go on the way we are, the way we have, burying our heads in the sand, living an illusion -- destroying everything because of our greed, because of our stupidity! 
As the poles reverse, and the magnetic energy moves South, communication will become difficult, aircraft will be at risk flying, nothing much will be able to move, as everything becomes confusingly reversed.  We will become isolated, a great human pall falling over the Earth…  On the other hand,  'Father Earth' will rejoice (note, now 'Mother Sun' as things have reversed).   
The Earth doesn't need us, humanity needs the Earth yet we abuse her (now 'him' as everything has reversed, or is in the process of reversing)!   
Only those prepared, like Dr. Bruce will survive.  But, Bruce… You won't want to survive to 'live,' in this completely devastating and chaotically different time (no electricity, no computers, no TV, no Internet)!  It will be completely different as 'survivors' plunged back into the Dark Ages!   And what to do when y/our 'stores' run out…?  There will be violence as survivors compete for water, food, shelter, even air!  
For the more conscious, however, an epiphany as they realize we have to compromise and cooperate to survive!  Female Energy!
We have to grow, change, evolve, with the rising (already here) Female Energy.  Female Energy that might save us (from ourselves).   The Female Energy is the 'Second Coming,' and already beginning to mediate extremes,
Back and forth,
Until we are 
Lost in each other,
'Knot noing' 
Which is which,
'Butt knot' really caring,
Tantric Taoism
P.S.  Someone once wrote/said, "There is infinite hope, but 'knot' for us!"  Let us change this idea, and let there be hope for humanity!  But, we must change!  We must evolve!  Humanity must stop abusing 'Father Earth!'   We must stop having too many children, the total population of the Earth climbing to deplete dwindling resources.  Simple!  It's that or extinction!  Simple!

This book, plan, etc., about how humanity might survive (an asteroid hitting earth), is typical of 'left-brained' thinking. It's always an external (objective) solution, for example the author suggests a 'Space Elevator.' When, in fact, the solution is internal. We need to change the way we think, metanoia!

African clawed frog may carry deadly disease

A deadly disease may lurk on the African clawed frog.

Science Recorder | Delila James | Thursday, May 16, 2013
African clawed frogs (Xenopus laevis), once imported to many countries during the first half of the 20th century for use in pregnancy tests, are spreading a deadly fungus to other frogs and salamanders, according to a study published today in the journal PLoS One.
The species was once imported from South Africa and bred by hospitals because they produced eggs when injected with the urine from pregnant women. The practice was mostly discontinued in the 1970s when better methods were developed to test for pregnancy and many African frogs were released into the wild. Now, the frogs are posing a serious threat to amphibians on multiple continents.
Frogs infected with the fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis, or Bd, could have brought the deadly pathogen to California shores, according to researchers. The frogs carried the infection in Africa for decades before it appeared in North America.
Bd infects the skin of amphibians, causing it to thicken up to 40 times greater than normal. Since frogs, salamanders, and other amphibians respirate and take in nutrients through their skin, this can have a deadly effect. Within a couple of weeks, the pathogen causes an electrolyte imbalance and the infected amphibians die of heart attacks. Over 400 species of amphibians are thought to have been driven either to extinction or near extinction by the arrival of this disease, according to one of the researchers involved in the study, Vance Vredenburg, a conservation biologist at San Francisco State University.
The deadly fungus is affecting amphibian populations worldwide, as the African clawed frog is now found nearly everywhere, including the United States, Europe, and China. It is “the worst disease in vertebrate history,” Vredenburg told the New York Times.
Dr. Vredenburg and colleagues assessed the prevalence of the disease by taking DNA samples from the skin of African clawed frog specimens that had been collected from wild populations in California between 2001 and 2010. They also tested preserved specimens collected in Africa between 1871 and 2010. The evidence confirmed that Bd was present in African frog populations before they were exported to other countries.
Although African clawed frogs are no longer used in pregnancy testing, they continued to be imported to the U.S. for medical and basic science research. However, because of their suspected role in spreading Bd, 11 states have already restricted the importation of these animals.
Vredenburg says people must be cautious when it comes to the importation of species for research and other purposes, noting that there could be other disease-carrying animals out there that nobody knows about yet.

It doesn't 'plague' me and easy to understand. These young people, undeveloped, unprepared for combat service. Worse, eventually they know intuitively that what they're doing/done was wrong.

U.S. politics, a 'football,' game of offense and defense! In the meantime, nothing much gets accomplished in terms of governing. And thus the State fails!

Cancer is an industry, not a disease!

We like saviors, Jesus, etc., to come and save us from ourselves as we 'no' we can't!   They (saviors) make the BIG SACRIFICE (why we worship them), shedding the body in a horribly painful way (our inhumanity).  But, in the process saviors add a new 'twist' to the tale, that gets our attention, shifting the direction as a new cycle begins.  Note, Jesus brought the concept of love into being.
The challenge is 'won' of consciousness (bevouszine:  a State of Knowing).  And how does it happen, this 'State of Noing?'  It just happens as decreed by Master, Lord, and God (our Trinity).  In the scheme of things, some are 'chosen' (captured, subdued and enslaved), their eyes opened to trancendence! 
Most people 'lobotimized' lead very small lives, shedding the body before understanding much. They return in another body ('born again') one rung higher on the ladder to Enlightenment.
Of course, all the foregoing, like the Christian Bible, just English words. What you make of them is the quest!
In our case it was cycling the world, living in China for five years, and creating, TANTRIC TAOISM!
Thus, we have added 'unconditional' to Jesus' love!  It's one thing to love, another to love unconditionally (the kind of love between mother and child).

"Why does every religious tradition assume a form of prayer?  (Note, not all do, for example, Buddhism and/or Taoism.). If God is the one, all -knowing, all powerful God, then why would we have to beseech 'his' (maybe God is a woman?) help or try to impel 'him' to do something?  Why wouldn't 'he' just set up commandments and covenants and judge us accordingly?  Why do we ask for 'his' special intervention?"  Because we believe we're helpless without.
"In this sense, every thought, every expectation--all of what we hope for to happen in the future is a prayer, and tends to create that very future."
Of course, this author, James Redfield (the book, 'The Tenth Insight,') makes my point again:  We create our wor(l)ds from our minds!  Yours maybe slightly different than mine, but we come together in dictionaries (we agree on what a word means).

Well, now I'm convinced, La Paz, the best shopping city anywhere I've been in the world!
From Llama fetuses, to muffin pans, to cycling shorts, to camping gear, and I couldn't believe it yesterday I found a 'Dugout.'  A Dugout in a Tatoo store (and only a few will know about this item).  If you can find Dugouts and Llama Fetuses in La Paz, then you can find anything!
Fresh figs, 'higos' (in Espanol) I buy here, candles, every known tool and construction item.  Anything having to to with illumination, light bulbs, freshly squeezed orange juice. The list never ends… Chocolate, Coca ojas.  There are health food stores.  Maybe the one item not so available here are good vitamins, food supplements (which I have to have Raj. send me.).  But, I'm told I can purchase quinoa flour and grown flax seeds.  
Practically, enough reason for living here in Bolivia are tamales (here 'humintos').  I love them, and this is the first place in So. America I've found them.  They also make the best corn bread I've ever tasted, different from the kind in the U.S. 
Of course, Alpaca and wool garments, bags, handicrafts, offering items (palo santo), even little stoves to burn the palo santo (sacred stick).

Yesterday, was the final task of completing our 1-yr. Residence Visa.  Surprisingly, it went the easiest, quickest of all!  Whew!  Three months work and $1,000U.S. total.  So, we're celebrating!

Today, a BIG day for us, as we (Angelo and I) collected my 1-year residence visa/passport from Bolivian Imagracion!  Was they ever any doubt?  Yes, today, first having to wait again for a signature, Angelo having to run out and fotocopy some documents.  The bureaucracy in Bolivia never seems to end.  Then a month ago having to go to Puno, Peru, twice.  This didn't instill confidence in me.  But, Angelo, and the Jove Family did the trick.  Certainly, I couldn't have done this without their help. 
Can we say that Evo's Socialism is any better?  Can we say that the Bolivian Socialistic Bureaucracy is more organized…?  I'd like to discuss this with Evo…  I'm all for Socialism, even Communism, but only IF IT REALLY IMPROVES THE LOT OF THE POOR PEOPLE -- not the government in power!  
The Bureaucracy in Bolivia reminds me of the one in Nepal.  C'mon, let's go to the videotape.  But, I'm guessing pretty much the same in the U.S. and China, just on a larger scale.  Remember I did the Chinese 'visa game,' for five years!
It's US, the people of the world, that are the problem, not the governments.  A sad fact, no one will admit!  It's just easier to project inefficiency, corruption, and evil onto others.  'Hey, I'm perfect!'  If only you'd listen to me!' 
I'm sure the challenge for a U.S. citizen to get a Bolivian residence visa, similar to what the poor Bolivian citizen has to go through to get any kind of U.S. visa.  It's tit for tat, and part of the reason we 'jumped through so many Bolivian hoops,' was to prove, one, that it can be accomplished, and secondly, to prove not all U.S. citizens are troublemakers, and/or working covertly for the C.I.A.
That done, we are now good to cycle around Bolivia, at least for one year.
Long term plan, two more (one-year) residence extensions, and I can apply for citizenship.  Best, you can hang onto your other 'citizenship' (passport), just in case you need such.  But, traveling around South America, much easier on a Bolivian passport than a U.S. passport.  Gringos are suspect!
The U.S., billions, maybe trillions, spent on 'Foreign Aid,' only to be disliked in many places around the world!  Where did it go, the money?  Mostly in the bureaurcrat's pockets. 
Oh well, we just print it anymore when needed (constantly)!  Thus, our imminent demise...

And yet another example, of U.S. Pathology, a very 'sick' nation!

Brother's arrest stuns Calif. town in girl's death

The Associated Press
 — People in this quiet Northern California community expressed relief that there had been an arrest in the stabbing death of an 8-year-old girl, but they were stunned by the suspect: her 12-year-old brother.
"It's just shocking. I don't know what else to say," Patti Campbell, longtime restaurant owner in the town of Valley Springs, told The Associated Press on Sunday.
Last month's stabbing death of Leila Fowler shook this small community southeast of Sacramento and set off an intense manhunt. Her brother was in the home at the time and told police he saw a man run from the scene.
Days later, the boy appeared with his father and stepmother at a vigil for his sister. On Friday, as speculation in the community built that perhaps the boy was involved, his biological mother told Sacramento television station KOVR her son "could never hurt his sister."
Later that day, police announced that the boy had been arrested and faced homicide charges.
